Now more than ever, we’re so grateful for snow!

We’ve been clicking into our skis a few times a week lately. We especially like getting out on the snow before we work from home. It's such a great way to start the day.

Here in northern Vermont the snow has been slowly adding up — and any kind of skiing is fun right now whether it’s cross-country, backcountry or alpine skiing.

With so much of our time spent at home, it’s been essential to get into the woods to keep our sanity.

Check out photos of a couple of the interesting things that Mother Nature recently offered for our viewing pleasure. Yesterday's thick rime ice (or hoarfrost???) on tree branches, last weekend's "snowsnake," and last week’s windblown moose tracks.

Have a great weekend everyone!

TAKE NOTE!

In an attempt to keep COVID-19 in check, Vermont and its ski resorts have NEW RESTRICTIONS AND RULES about traveling to the state and skiing/riding at resorts. Review the rules on these websites:
